    I made this yesterday with wild mint that grows in abundance here. Good job I made lots because friends dropped in - it was 38 degrees in the shade and this brought us all back to life. Delicious and so refreshing - you are now famous hereabouts - we'll all be making it. Thank you!!

    WOW! This was delicious!!! I can't believe how much it actually taste like tea, with no tea bags! I cut the recipe back as I just made it for myself. I sucked this down and wish I had made more! Thanks for this tasty refreshing recipe!

    I have lots of mint - now all I need is some warmer weather and I'll be trying this soon. Can't have simple syrup so will be trying it with Truvia (my diabetes won't allow the sugar). Thanks DT!

    This is an extremely refreshing summertime drink!!! I did take the easy route and made it by muddling the mint leaves and sugar before pouring boiling water over all and steeping. I'm sure I will be making this many more times this summer.

    I have always just added the mint to tea made with black tea bags - never tried using only mint. Will have to give this a try! I usually just use granulated sugar and "muddle" the mint in it before adding the boiling water. Have you ever tried that to compare which method releases more of the mint flavor?
